IT IS SCARY TO THINK WHERE WE’D BE IF THERE WERE SHOWS
This week started off sluggish for us. We saw all our buddies doing well and we were almost demoralized. But then we handle much more expensive coins. Starting Wednesday afternoon, with the sale of the $10 Rolled Edge, we hit an unbelievable selling streak. The Rolled Edge went exactly where we wanted it to-a collector building a major Type set. After that sale was confirmed, it was non stop selling. Coins from $1,000.00 to $30,000.00 blew off our web site. Of course the world class issue remains: we can NOT replace anything! Yikes! Sure we’ll buy generics all day long, but our real clientele craves better gold and better coins in general. We’re not so sure even having shows would make a difference right now. Plus, much to our surprise, we only see one or two people dumping to raise cash.
Gold slithered back up this morning (Friday 28th) by $35.00 and is flirting with $2,000.00 again. We firm believe it will shoot past that and on to record prices. As we have said many times, the underlying factors are still there for gold to keep rising.
Now, the fundemental factors for rare coins to in increase in value are growing too. THERE ARE NO TRUE RARE COINS AROUND. Sure, next month Simpson starts, but there are more Patterns then rare coins.
IF YOU SEEK REPRESENTATION FOR SIMPSON, CALL OR EMAIL US NOW. No one knows these coins better then we do-we sold him every one! Do NOT expect any of these coins to slide through the cracks. The market is starved for coins like these.
Even if a 100% safe vaccine is ready tomorrow, the rare coin market has so much demand, it could only make things worse (demand would grow even more and harder). Coins simply are NOT on the market.
Coins are still cheap. Gold coins are still cheap. BUY WHAT YOU CAN TODAY. You will NOT regret it. We do think smaller collectors tho should take some generic gold off the table if they made a huge %. Or trade into much better rare coins. We can work and advise you on both.
We know we are starting to sound like a broken record. This is coin market we live in.
Look at what we have!
Set: 1C-$1 1858 PCGS PR64-PR66 ALL CAC. A MATCHED ORIGINAL SET. WOW. This set was with the same family since it left the Mint until 2001. We then placed it. THIS IS A FRESH AS CAN BE! We consider matched original proof sets to be the last frontier of numismatics.
$5 1909 PCGS PR66 CAC. Another WOW coin! This is one super rare bird too.
Of course we have many other coins to fit most tastes and budgets.
We are seeking BETTER DMPL’s and many coins priced $1,000.00-$7,500.00. ALL MUST BE PCGS CAC.
If you collect Proof Type in the 1860’s, stay tuned. We hope to have a monster offering mid September. We have been working on some small deals. Hopefully we will have things soon to offer.
LEGEND RARE COIN AUCTIONS
While not our biggest or best sale, prices were far in excess of what we expected. Plus, everyone piled on with less then 24 hours before the sale closed. We’ve had last minute bidding, but never so furious like that.
